    Microsoft Releases Anti-Spyware App

    Microsoft recently bought a company that makes Anti-Spyware software, and now they have released a trial of a Microsoft-branded Anti-Spyware tool.
    Microsoft this week released a free trial copy of anti-spyware software it purchased last month, marking the company's entry into the fast-growing market for products that block surreptitious snooping programs, and promised monthly releases of tools to stop new malicious software.
    Have a gander over here for PC World's article.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    It's not clear from any of these articles whether Microsoft will be charging for this Anti-Spyware tool. Since the problem of spyware is largely a Microsoft creation, then I would hope that this tool would be made available free of charge.

    "Perhaps the new MS Anti-Spyware application is just a stop-gap solution until Longhorn comes out in a few years. But I'm not holding my breath. Instead, let's all follow Microsoft's lead: admit defeat now, and then figure out how to profit from the epidemic you helped create."
